A tradition begins
Join us Saturday, Oct. 9, 2010, for the 33rd Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk for Children’s Hospital. This event has raised more than $11 million dollars with the help of outstanding community support. In 2009, more than 14,500 participants raised approximately $1 million for Children’s Hospital. Be a part of one of Milwaukee’s longest running traditions!
The Al’s Run success story
Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk owes its success to a wellspring of community support that has benefited Children’s Hospital in countless ways. The late Marquette University basketball coach Al McGuire, the event’s founder, was deeply committed to supporting many Children’s Hospital programs. Proceeds from the first run and walk went toward the prosthetic limb bank.
